When Quade swoops in to save his archenemy, Sol, from bloodthirsty Cybers, he doesn't expect to find himself almost torn apart, terrified beyond imagining and even worse-declaring his love for her.

Now they're trapped on Sol's spaceship, both half-insane due to the Cybers pumping them full of some lust drug. If they can't get a hold of themselves quickly, they're going to b

Oh, Charlotte Stein, I am in love with you! Well, specifically your characters, plots, and insanity!
"The Horizon" was a literal ride of my life! With its roller coaster ups and downs, I was nauseous, excited, horrified, and ecstatic! I simply
So, I'll start with a disclaimer: Futuristic / Sci-fi is not at all my favourite genre.
But gee, I enjoyed the heck out of this one! Sweet, funny, sexy and it had an enjoyable plot! I always enjoy this author's writing style and this story was no different in that front.

While I've long appreciated Charlotte Stein's humor in blog and tweet form, I really didn't appreciate just how funny her writing is until I dipped into The Horizon. Wonderful, wonderful characterizations, just enough interesting plot to keep the pace brisk and give the sex plenty of context. The Horizon has smart-ass spacers, horrific cyber-villains, humor, pathos, wild monkey sex...pretty much everything I look for in a book. Liked it so much after the first read, I just flipped back to the st ...more

Hunter's Review

The Horizon is a humorous book. It is really, really funny and Charlotte Stein manages to do what is really difficult, which is to combine the humorous with science fiction, action, and hot erotic romance—and—make it work! I really enjoyed reading this book. It was such a fast paced read that I wizzed through it loving every second.

I recommend this book for fans of hot heroes, science fiction, and action packed erotic romance. I will be picking up more Charlotte Stein books!

This was one of those really fun, sexy books. Charlotte Stein by herself is always a winner in my opinion, but Charlotte Stein does space cowboy is practically the cutest thing ever – in a filthy, sex-obsessed way of course. It's got cowboy slang with just a hint of british grammar, so it took some thinking on my part to understand the sentences, but those are some of the funnest books for me to read.

Imagine some alien species, somewhere between Cybermen from Doctor Who and Vidiians from Star Tr

Charlotte Stein can do anything! Contemporary, paranormal -- and now, we see she can do s/f as well. Hero and heroine are hot as Hades. The situation unfolds with excellent unexpected plot twists and the sex is hot and real feeling. Short, sharp, and dramatic--like a punch to the gut or a crush that leaves you dizzy.

While I don't usually read sci-fi romance genres, I will give anything Charlotte Stein writes a try, and I wasn't disappointed. The relationship between Quade and Sol, while combative and sarcastic throughout, make their personalities perfect for one another. It was a quick read, and again, I found myself wanting more of their world, and a continuation of Sol and Quade's romance. It was funny, smart, tense, hot, and most of all, a must read!!

Charlotte Stein is great, love her character's dialogue, and even more, the utterly unselfconscious, "rude" inner dialogue. This one was a little too sci-fi, I guess, for me, but her hallmark sexiness and quirky love were still there.

Nonetheless I'd recommend one of my 4-5 star ratings if you're looking for a book to start your foray into this fantastic erotic author.
Oh Charlotte Stein, how I do adore you. Hilarious wit, scorching heat and high terror in deep space. I really couldn't have asked for anything more.

I loved this book so hard. Space ship, sexytimes, cheeky banter and a heroine who is secretly a cyborg. Awesomeness.

Good characterisation and great environment building. Would have like to have seen more of the world they lived in but there was just enough to feel like I was in that setting without waffling. It had a very nice and interesting storyline with good, natural humour. I felt like most of the second half was from Sol's POV and would have like to have seen more of Quade's during the fun time. Still enjoyable, and as always Stein's writing style has me all warmed up with excitement, regardless of what ...more

Going onto my favorites shelves. The opening dialogue was quick and intelligent, building a world with humor without TELLING (all caps are on purpose) the reader what it is they are witnessing. Therefore, the writer successfully demonstrated this world in which the characters lived through the use of communication not straight exposition.

Stein, as always, writes the lurve scenes with "satisfaction".

This book is one of her best! It's funny, logical, heartbreaking, suspenseful and passionate all at the same time. So much creativity went into this one - it's one of the ones that really made me love her as an author overall and honestly - I hope that maybe someday she'll break away from erotica so my mom can read her books, too!
